Summary: It is well worth the money!
Pros: I had this watch for nearly 6 years. I am in the military, so its been through a lot of tough times and 3 deployments. It died on me the first time at the beginning of my 4th deployment. I let it sit in a window for about an hour and it lasted another month and a half before i had to charge it again. Ultimately the band broke about a month ago. I just bought a new one. I highly recommend this watch. It has served me well. There is no need for a replacement policy unle...
Summary: I bought this watch for my husband for Christmas. So far it is working as advertised, but it does not come with instructions so be prepared for trial and error. We still haven't figured out how to get the date to display.
Summary: I had been shopping online for several weeks prior to purchasing this watch. When I saw the price that the watch was selling for, I bought it right away. This watch was what I was looking for in an Atomic Solar watch and more. Thanks again.
Summary: I have owned this model of watch for over 7 years, I have gone through 3 wrist bands (they are about 30-40$ to replace), the batteries seem to go bad after about 7 years (for me), but to replace the batteries you have to take it to a retail store, hand over the watch, pay ~65-70$/they send it to Casio for replacement due to the sealing of the case and was told will take 3-4 weeks before it comes back.

Summary: What gets me mad is that Casio knows there wrist bands give out in a year or two and do nothing to fix this problem...For years it has been this way...Use a cheap grade of plastic so they crack and break and you have to spend 15 dollars to get a new one if you can find one...JC Pennys and some other stores do not sell these watches anymore due to the fact they break...There wrist bands and battery's don't last..
